Do you want to create a portfolio that will help you get hired as an illustrator, artist, or designer? If so, then this is the course for you.
This projet takes place in the Amsterdam zoo, during a summer trip. The following photographs are colorful, but without souls. I make two parts, and this one is the happy side of Amsterdam zoo. I chose this part because I think it reflects what part of nature can offer as inspiration.
I walked with friends and followed the zoo's visit, until going through the aquatic part. Then, I was stunned by the purity of colors emitted from these plants andcreatures. I just took the time to look around, and forced to see these bright colors, I blew my camera and took these shots. I didn't chose anything, i captured the moment.
I made all these shots with a Canon EOS 700D, and an 18-135mm lens from Canon also. I used some photoshop to adjust contrast, balance, and saturation. No more. Basic editing. Why ? Because I want to bring out the natural beauty. This shots are better without makeup.
I have had feedback from friends who have never seen such clear colors from plants, they was surprised. I learned that nature was like an image bank, if you look at it, it can be very rewarding culturally and creatively.
As I said, I created two parts. The other part is truer than this one. With emotions and meaning. They reveal a message through looks.
